In this chapter, we learned about estimation, planning, and forecasting. These skills are not part of the Scrum Guide and are not essential for passing the PSP I exam. However, they are skills that all Scrum Masters should possess to fully comprehend the product life cycle, and to best be able to provide leadership and counseling to the Scrum Team.
Due to this, we learned about how to estimate with story points by playing Planning Poker or using estimation buckets, as well as the different ways we can tweak these methods to our needs and circumstances. We also learned how to create a product roadmap and how this roadmap helps us formulate our Product Backlog and group our work into themes and capabilities (or epics).
Finally, we learned how to measure and monitor our progress and forecast our future work using velocity and burn charts. In the next chapter, we'll discuss how to manage the work that takes place within the Sprint. See you there!
